Lote TEGR 008 from Batch 2. 02/01/2018 The nomenclature gets confusing here. There is a difference between bottling lotes and production lotes. Nose: Dried fruit: citron and dried apricots. Light colored tree fruit, ripe berries and peaches, warm barrel spice, vanilla and a light and airy floral aroma. Some herbals. Flavor: Fruity, sweet, oily and spicy. Significant oak influence. Soft and round vanilla and butterscotch notes. Buttery with some pepper tingle. The agave still punches through all the barreling notes. This is one of those rare tequilas that you use as a benchmark. Quality through and through.
